Carter-Willams led all rookies in points, rebounds, assists, and steals, and was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal 19-63 campaign for the 76ers.

Philadelpia is considered to have one of the brightest futures in the NBA, and Carter-Williams is a main reason for that. The team will also have two lottery picks in the upcoming NBA Draft, and $30 million in cap space this off-season.

Carter-Williams is the first 76er to win the award since Allen Iverson won the award in 1996.
